So one of my readers inspired me to think of a “fix” to the crayon art canvas I recently posted about. It seems the crayons bled through the tape she used. I brainstormed a bit and here’s what I came up with.
* Optional: Using a paper towel I ragged on different colors of paint on the canvas so when the crayons melted they would melt against a color background and not a white one.
Using the same technique I used for the crayon art project, I made a canvas with the melted crayons.
Then I printed out some illustrations I found on the internet. I cut some of the illustrations out while others I ripped the paper to give the edge the not so neat look. Other edges of the paper I burnt with a lighter.
I arranged them on the canvas the way I wanted it to look. Using the All Purpose Mod Podge, I glued these to the canvas using a brush. Then once all my paper is in place, I brush on the Mod Podge all over thecanvas to seal it.
Let it dry and you are ready to display your artwork!
Here’s a collage I made using aluminum foil, nuts and bolts from Home Depot, a wire and some illustrations I found on the web. I started dabbing some paint on a canvas with some paper towel and once that was dry I the paper using Mod Podge. I brushed on a top layer of Mod Podge to make everything stick together really well.
Have fun making your own!
